County of Summit DD 2011 Levy Endorsement


I am (we are) proud to endorse the levy request for the County of Summit Developmental Disabilities Board that will appear before the voters of Summit County as Issue 25 on the November 8, 2011 ballot. Realizing that Issue 25 is not a new tax and is a renewal the current a 4.5 mill Levy for the period of 2013-2018, and considering that Issue 25 will provide a critical safety net for more than 4,000 of Summit County’s eligible citizens with DD, I (we) wish to promote its passage.
